Never believe the thoughts you have after a binge. They are actually part of the cycle. Consider them like the rantings of a delusional person.
All you can do now is wait for a glimpse of real hunger. Sometimes I have waited until it has come even if it meant 8 or 9 hours. Sometimes I have waited 4 or 5 hours and then had a meal even if I wasn't hungry. I try to eat a bit of a light meal, not as punishment, but to help restore the ability to get hungry again. Sometimes it takes until the next day.
There is no one right way, except that it is better not to berate yourself, but try to look calmly and strive to establish an ordered moderate eating plan so that you are sure to get the nourishment and pleasure you deserve. Then resist all urges to go outside of it. If your plan is reasonable and fair, you will not be cheating yourself of anything, no matter what the thoughts of the moment say. In fact, you will be gaining peace of mind.
